Started my winch bumper






I'm planning on adding D-ring mounts and a "hoop" to go up and over the winch. Still have to add a piece across the front for the roller. Probably put light mounting tabs on the hoop.

Is there any thing I'm forgetting?

I'll probably cut the plates for the D-rings to lap over the top just a little and then weld down the front. I may just weld them straight to the 3/16 plate on the front. That's how the store bought bumpers look.

The winch plate is 1/4", the rest is 3/16". I had some 10 gauge but decided against it. The pieces right below the fenders are also 1/4", but only because it was 3" flat strap and saved me from ripping the 3/16".

Welded out and ready for grinding.



Now I'm thinking I might not add a hoop. I don't have a bender and don't want to mess with weld in 45's. The plate that I used had been sitting around for a while, going to paint with bedliner to hide the pitting.

It looks great. Did you design with a CAD program or card board?
